Carrier Transicold’s Vector™ 1350 trailer refrigeration unit, using new software to increase system power and lower noise levels, will be shown at the Solutrans Show in Lyon, France, Nov. 17-Nov. 21. Carrier Transicold, operating in France as Carrier Transicold France, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Now with 13,100 watts of refrigeration capacity, the updated Vector 1350 provides even more power for the transportation of perishable goods. Achieving a lower noise level of just 69 decibels, the Vector 1350 unit provides added comfort for drivers and neighbors during deliveries. At the same time, the Vector 1350 unit’s light weight of approximately 643 kilograms enables haulers to carry larger payloads, offering greater reliability as a result of the new software.
As the CEN Partial Load Test Norm proved, the 1.1-liter engine reduces fuel consumption by up to 30 percent compared to the previous unit. The engine drives both a compressor and a generator to power the ventilation system. Three electric fans significantly improve system reliability. By using a microchannel condenser coil, the Vector 1350 unit requires about 27 percent less refrigerant than its predecessor.
A new range of evaporator products for Vector units will also be displayed at the stand. Applicable for multi-temperature applications, the evaporators combine an aesthetic design with improved performance. The new design prevents water from splashing on goods during defrost operations with improved drainage. An access hatch facilitates mounting, maintenance and repair processes.
